Comparative outcomes of middle meningeal artery embolization with statins versus embolization alone in the treatment of chronic subdural hematoma: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Journal Article Neurosurg Rev · October 3, 2023 Chronic subdural hematoma (cSDH) is common among the elderly, with surgical evacuation as a prevalent treatment, facing recurrence rates up to 30%. Recently, middle meningeal artery embolization (MMAE) has emerged as a promising approach, offering reduced ... Full text Link to item Cite

The Surgical Autonomy Program: A Pilot Study of Social Learning Theory Applied to Competency-Based Neurosurgical Education.

Journal Article Neurosurgery · March 15, 2021 Over the last decade, strict duty hour policies, pressure for increased work related value units from faculty, and the apprenticeship model of education have coalesced to make opportunities for intraoperative teaching more challenging. Evidence is emerging ... Full text Link to item Cite

Autograft-derived spinal cord mass in the cervical spine following transplantation with olfactory mucosa cells for traumatic spinal cord injury: case report.

Journal Article J Neurosurg Spine · November 6, 2020 This study describes a patient with an autograft-derived spinal cord mass following transplantation of olfactory mucosa for treatment of cervical spine injury. The authors report the case of a 35-year-old man who suffered a complete spinal cord injury (SCI ... Full text Link to item Cite

Enhancing Reality: A Systematic Review of Augmented Reality in Neuronavigation and Education.

Journal Article World Neurosurg · July 2020 OBJECTIVE: Augmented reality (AR) is increasingly being explored as an adjunct to conventional neuronavigation systems. AR affords the ability to superimpose 3-dimensional images onto the real environment. A natural extension of this technology is to help ... Full text Link to item Cite

Predictors of Clinical Outcome After Treatment of Intracranial Aneurysms with the Pipeline Embolization Device.

Journal Article World Neurosurg · October 2019 BACKGROUND: Flow-diverting stents have revolutionized the endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms. The purpose of this study is to identify predictors of adverse outcomes associated with the pipeline embolization device (PED). METHODS: A retrospec ... Full text Link to item Cite

Treatment of a Fusiform Anterior Cerebral Artery Aneurysm by Remodeling the Circle of Willis with Flow Diversion: A Novel Technical Note.

Journal Article World Neurosurg · September 2019 BACKGROUND: Fusiform aneurysms are challenging lesions to manage given their poorly understood natural history and lack of a distinct neck. Historically, they have been treated surgically but endovascular management has recently evolved as a viable alterna ... Full text Link to item Cite

Neurologic Decline After Spinal Angiography for Dural Arteriovenous Fistula and Improvement with Emergent Surgical Ligation.

Journal Article World Neurosurg · August 2016 BACKGROUND: Although angiography does not generally lead to increased clinically significant neurologic deficits, it has been reported that angiography for spinal dural arteriovenous fistulas (SDAVFs) can lead to acute neurologic decline. This has been rar ... Full text Link to item Cite

Vitamin D Levels and 1-Year Fusion Outcomes in Elective Spine Surgery: A Prospective Observational Study.

Journal Article Spine (Phila Pa 1976) · October 1, 2015 STUDY DESIGN: Prospective observational study. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the association of perioperative vitamin D levels and nonunion rates and time to fusion in patients undergoing elective spine fusion. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Although there is a c ... Full text Link to item Cite

Endovascular and Surgical Treatment of Unruptured MCA Aneurysms: Meta-Analysis and Review of the Literature.

Journal Article Stroke Res Treat · 2014 Introduction. The best treatment for unruptured middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysms is unclear. We perform a meta-analysis of recent publications to evaluate the results of unruptured MCA aneurysms treated with surgical clipping and endovascular coiling ... Full text Link to item Cite

Derivation of injury-responsive dendritic cells for acute brain targeting and therapeutic protein delivery in the stroke-injured rat.

Journal Article PLoS One · 2013 Research with experimental stroke models has identified a wide range of therapeutic proteins that can prevent the brain damage caused by this form of acute neurological injury. Despite this, we do not yet have safe and effective ways to deliver therapeutic ... Full text Link to item Cite

The microtubule interacting drug candidate NAP protects against kainic acid toxicity in a rat model of epilepsy.

Journal Article J Neurochem · December 2009 NAP (NAPVSIPQ, generic name, davunetide), a neuroprotective peptide in clinical development for neuroprotection against Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative indications, has been recently shown to provide protection against kainic acid excitotox ...
